Nuff Kind Of Dread

Well whether Tom, whether Dick, whether Harry or Fred
Remember what Pato Banton said
Anywhere you go there is nuff kind of dread

Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!
Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city yeah
Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!
Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city

Well you know my name is P.P.P.P. Pato Banton
Born a South London but now me rest in Birmingham
As an entertainer me have to tour the nation
And anywhere me go me sight nuff Rastaman
Some a wear beaver, some a wear buckers, some of them in a
tam
Some walking street, some riding bike, some driving Bad Man
Wagon (BMW)
Some of them a gwarn like super notch, some a dem a gwarn
like Don
Some a them a carry themselves like say they don’t give a
damn
But anywhere me go and sight the situation
Me Just pick up the mic and start sing this song

Chorus

Well first you have the dread them that stay like me!
We pants reach we shoes and not by we knee
We wear clean socks we foot don’t cheesy
Some dread wear them socks till them turn crusty
Vosene Shampoo to wash me notty (dread)
And when me done me ask me queen to dry it for me
One thing that I hate and can’t stand to see
Is when two dread a fight over stupidity
Rastaman fe unite inna harmony
Cause unity is strength and strength is what we need

Chorus

Certain dreadlocks a gwarn like them well primitive
No want to come to terms with the times we a live
Always a take but never want to give
Rejected by their parents and relatives
They don’t thing positive and find somewhere to live
Just a rest a man yard and a eat out the fridge
Is them kind a man Pato don’t walk with
Cause me don’t want GT to call me a div (stupid)

Chorus

Well now we have the dread dem weh Big ‘Bout Yah
Them dress pretty slick and a drive big car
When you see them you just know that their a hustler
If them no a have a gal a street then them a push ganja
If not sensi, coke or acid or some formula
Some of them a carry gun like a real gansta
They reveal their true within-ness when they drink liquor
They think it’s stupid for a dread to go to Africa
“When you can hustle inna England and be Big ‘Bout Yah?”

Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!
Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city yeah
Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!
Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city …… easy man!
